What a great addition to the market! This is a wonderful book with engaging and delightful illustrations. Each page features a letter sound and a creative rhyme as it guides you through the alphabet. As a Montessori teacher, and I have also used this book in the classroom. The children adore it, and love to point out things they see on each page that correspond to the sound featured. I highly recommend this book to help children with phonological awareness. A highlight is the accompanying CD, narrated by Jim Weiss. This, along with parenthesis ¿key¿ at the bottom of each page, guide the caregiver to the correct letter sound to pronounce¿essential when helping children to learn to read!
